Moment in time

In 1976, Grandview City Councilman Everett Daniels confessed his "secret desire" for Grandview Heights to have its own Christmas tree. That year, city maintenance workers carried out his idea. A 25-foot Austrian fir, located on park property along Goodale Boulevard just west of Grandview Avenue, was cut down and taken to Pierce Field, where it was erected and stabilized with guy wires. Under the direction of Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Veach (pictured to the right of Daniels), the tree was decorated with Christmas ornaments made by students of Grandview's Stevenson and Edison elementary schools. The city's official lighting ceremony followed, and Grandview Heights had its first Christmas tree.
